HARTLEPOOL United have named an unchanged line-up for the visit of Stevenage to Victoria Park.

Ronnie Moore keeps faith with Marlon Harewood and Marvin Morgan up front, with Jack Compton and Jonathan Franks on the flanks.

New loan signing Jordan Jones, signed on a month-long loan from Middlesbrough on Friday, is on the bench.

Scott Fenwick, who was a major doubt with an ankle injury, makes it onto the bench.

But Matthew Bates misses out with a dead leg and illness, while Tommy Miller is still working his way back to fitness.

Stevenage are 10th in Sky Bet League Two while Pools start the day bottom of the league, six points from safety.

Ex-Pools midfielder Simon Walton is the Stevenage captain.

Pools (4-4-2): Flinders (C), Duckworth, Harrison, Mirfin, Austin, Franks, Tshibola, Woods, Compton, Harewood, Morgan.

Subs: Maxted, Richards, D Jones, Walker, Featherstone, J Jones, Fenwick.

Stevenage (4-5-1): Day, Dembele, Bond, Whelpdale, Walton (C), Parrett, Wells, Beardsley, Kennedy, Deacon, Martin.

Subs: Beasant, Zola, Pett, Lee, D Johnson, R Johnson, Andrade.

Referee: Stephen Martin (Staffordshire)
